Cast your eyes on this gorgeous Graeme Gunn courtyard house in what appears to be stunningly original condish. It stands as it has for 50 years, hidden from the street, waiting for you to walk in and experience it. And it bears repeating that the strengths of such architecture, such a regular suburban example, lies not in styling arrangements but in the elemental materials. Not in the perfumed candles, but in the breezy airflow. Not in expensive light centerpiece, but in the seasonal sunlight and deep shade governed by window placement. It’s not, and never has been, in the viewing but rather in the feeling.
